Thousands of volunteers needed to support UEFA EURO 2020
For UEFA EURO 2020, volunteers will be crucial for a successful running of the tournament. Especially this special edition of the tournament with 12 host cities (not 13, thanks to Brussels not participating), a high-quality volunteer programme will need to be implemented across the different venues. Volunteers support different projects such as media ticketing, match operations, spectator services and many more.
The application phase will be launched at the beginning of summer 2019. The volunteer programme will be implemented by the 12 local organising structures (LOS) who are responsible for recruitment, training and management of volunteers during the games.
After having worked with hundreds of volunteers during UEFA EURO 2016 in Lyon, I can only say this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to gain skills in the sports & football business. To those who are eager to gain experience and are willing to find a job in the industry, I can only recommend to apply. A lot of them start as a volunteer but later find their way into the football business.
